It's all part of the plan ... photo by Nancy Anisfield/anisfield hunting dog photography
Um, no, it’s not what some call a “cluster.” This is a good example of the hardworking Wingshooting USA crew literally getting all the angles last week at Quail Country Plantation. Dog on point, Lynn Berland (on left) creeps in for a canine closeup.
Meanwhile, Tad Newberry grabs a shot of yours truly (out of frame) getting ready to back Bob (far right) as Terry Wilson of Ugly Dog Hunting Co. handles his wire Scrub. (By the way, this quail towered like a ringneck then streaked down a lane in the chinaberry trees. I actually hit it with my second shot!) That is truly a rare occasion – you can bet it will make the final cut.
Enjoy the sunshine and bare ground; and yes, I got a sunburn. Watch for it on the show this fall.

What a weekend! Terry Wilson’s Ugly Dog Hunting Co. hosted a get together at Arlington, Georgia’s Quail Country Plantation and we were invited. It was a chance to enjoy true southern hospitality as well as a traditional plantation hunting experience with a twist: UGLY DOGS were doing the hard work.
We were treated to an incredible exhibition of finished versatile hunting dog work, particularly of Terry’s wirehair Tank when braced with Tim Clark’s shorthair Troy, a NAVHDA versatile champion. Watch the point and steadiness to wing-shot-fall. If only I’d had a wider lens you could see Tim’s dog honor both the point and the retrieve! [You'll see much better video when Lynn and director Tad Newberry's footage finds it's way to Wingshooting USA next fall. For now, you'll have to put up with my very raw amateur video.]
